REVIEW: Sylvia And Bird By Catherine Rayner

BOOK NAME: SYLVIA AND BIRD

AUTHOR & ILLUSTRATOR: CATHERINE RAYNER

PAGES: 32

PUBLISHER: LITTLE TIGER PRESS

AGE RECOMMENDED: 4+

I love Cathrine’s books and Sylvia and bird is another great book by her. Sylvia the Dragon loves her leafy home, high in the treetops, but she is very lonely. She has searched the entire world over but has never once found another dragon. She really needed a friend and one day she befriended a bird and they both became fast friends. They both started enjoying each other’s company and had fun together. Sylvia feels lonely again when the bird chit chats with other birdies. Sylvia thought what if similar dragons like her were staying on the moon. Seeing Sylvia’s loneliness, the bird decided to travel with her to the moon. unfortunately, things didn’t work as planned and they both came back to the earth soon. Can Sylvia realise it’s okay to have a friend who’s a little bit different?

I enjoy Catherine’s illustrations bit more and this book is the evidence to that. Look at the palette of colours she used for the dragon and the landscape on each page.

This is a warming story about two different creatures, who eventually became friends. I always believe anyone can be friends and you don’t need any perfection to become friends. My heart aches when I hear parents tell, don’t be friends with them because they are of different caste, religion or we don’t talk to them. All I believe true friendship can break any boundaries and it can survive anything.

A good reminder for kids, no matter what you will have your best friend at your back.
